Tiger has been acting like a bully, but Rat shows him how important it is to share and play fair.

Rat and Tiger are best friends. They have lots of fun playing together, even though when they play cowboys, Rat always has to be the bad guy. When they share a snack, Rat always gets the smaller piece. But one day, Tiger takes the bullying too far, and Rat decides that he’s not going take it anymore. Rat stands up for himself and refuses to be Ttiger’s friend until Tiger learns to play fair and square. With appealing illustrations and a simple text, Keiko Kasza delivers an important message about friendship in this heartwarming story.
